Author: Barney Blake, 28/09/15

U12, U14 and Girls leagues all kick off

This weekend saw the start of the 2015/16 SWBA Junior Central Venue Leagues, with Porthcawl, Cardiff Met and Pontypridd hosting the first tournaments of the year. Cougars kicked off the season, hosting the first games in the new U14 Girls league at Porthcawl Comprehensive on Saturday morning. The tournament was a fantastic start to the season, which saw great numbers of girls competing against one another. Cardiff Met Archers came out on top undefeated, while Cougars made the most of their home advantage as they defeated the Panthers and Bears. 

Cardiff Met Archers were the next club to host a CVL tournament, as the U12 Mixed league got underway at Archers Arena. U12 Pool 1 saw the Archers A, Archers B and RCT Gladiators compete for the spoils, as Archers A came out on top. ENDC Coach Beth Jones' U12 team shone as their talented Welsh squads members united to defeat their club counterparts and the Gladiators. RCT avenged their defeat to handily defeat a young Archers B team to finish the tournament.

Sunday saw the U14 Mixed league get underway with Pontypridd Panthers hosting a tournament at their new venue at Abercynon Leisure Centre. The Panthers welcomed Cardiff Met Archers A (U14's) and Cardiff Met Archers B (U13's) to begin the season in U14 Pool 1. Coach George Webb's Cardiff Met Archers A were a class apart on the day, as they utilised their speed on the fast break to create quick scoring opportunities and comfortably defeat their opponents. 

Next weekend sees the U10's get in on the action as their CVL tournaments start, with Tonyrefail Tigers hosting Cardiff Tribal Hunters & Cardiff Met Archers and Swansea Storm hosting RCT Gladiators, Pontypridd Panthers A & Pontypridd Panthers B.
